No Comments: Just Photos of kids …

Posted on July 1, 2012

Mimo’s blog 365, from the archive shows pictures of kids ( among other kinds of pictures) in war-torn countries such as Cambodia and the Congo who exhibit the spirit of joy. 

I decided to share them with you. You may check a previous post:

Xinjiang Uyghur “Autonomous Region“, spans more than 1.6 square kilometers in the north western part of China, and border with Tibet, Russia, Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

It is home to different ethnic groups  like Uyghur, Kazakh, Hui, Kyrgyz, Mongol, Tajik and the Han Chinese. Only about 4.3% of Xinjiang is suitable for human habitation

Mimo wrote: “Traveling in Xinjiang was an unforgettable adventure. This month’s journey will start in Kashgar, go across the old silk road to the high mountain of Tashkurgan near the Pakistani border and then go back to end in Kashgar again.

The people I met on this trip were some of the brightest, most hospitable and unique tribes in this part of the world.

The name Uyghur translates to ‘united’ or ‘people coming together’, as these wonderful people demonstrate in their great sense of community and age old traditions.
